The capital of the small island La Désirade is called Beauséjour, also known by its former name Grande-Anse. It is a small village with about 1000 inhabitants, but still it is the real centre of the island. The boat arrives here, the few shops of the island are here, and it is the place where you can arrange transport for the duration of your stay: a scooter, a car, or more active: a mountainbike!
The village basically has two streets: one mainstreet crossing the whole village, and one along the coastline. Especially the western part of the mainstreet is very charming: colourful, small houses, and flowers everywhere. At the coastline there are not many houses, but only palmtrees and a lot of colourfully painted fishingboats.
At both sides of the village there are beaches. The one at the eastside of town is more popular and has small restaurants and snackbars underneath the palmtrees. The one at the other side has a great palmtree-forest and small sheds, and a very quiet atmosphere. Another nice thing here: the big swing! :)
Address: Beauséjour (Grande-Anse), La Désirade
